There are two types of interaction: dynamic and static. Dynamic interaction has simple offline ways to create and improve your interaction with the audience. Dynamic means all physical forms of interaction that you can use to keep your audience engaged and alert without affecting the contents of your presentation. Below you can see a few examples of dynamic interaction:
This can be a simple raise of a hand. You could also be creative and have your audience wave, dance or move around the hall. You can make it as fun as it gets! Be prepared to demonstrate first or do it together with your audience, so that nobody feels silly.
Use different signs or badges to receive your audience’s opinion. It can be very tricky to engage a large group of people and get everyone to express their opinion. You can make your presentation interactive by using red or green signs. This way, you can prevent chaotic movements around the hall where everyone wants to speak out and you can still hear everyone out.
Dynamic interaction in a presentation is a very good way of breaking the ice and engaging the public. But proceed with caution! A lot of physical interaction can become boring. When you ask your audience for interaction but don’t add any actual meaning to it, your story becomes boring and your people lose interest.
